Summary
In order to stave off a bout of melancholy, Superintendent Richard Jury perversely vacations in the north of England in winter. While at his lodgings, The Old Silent, he witnesses a woman kill her husband. Even though he knows what he saw, the lady intrigues the unlucky-in-love Jury, and he feels that she must have a good reason for pulling the trigger -- but she refuses to talk. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
